Policy No. 1800 Training and Development for Board Members

To promote the ongoing development of knowledge and competencies in the governance role and to keep informed on current practices and issues in education, the members of the Board of Education are encouraged to participate in appropriate board conferences, workshops, and conventions. Funds for participation at such meetings will be budgeted for annually.

To be consistent with and set an appropriate example for the rest of the district, the Board will take cost demands into consideration when considering and planning for professional development activities specifically meant for board members. The Board may choose to forego travel to some national or regional conferences if it is felt that the costs are excessive and/or not in keeping with the other financial needs and priorities of the district.
